Tucker Carlson interviewed several GOP Presidential candidates during “The Summit” presented by Blaze Media. The event was over eight hours long and it streamed for free on YouTube and Twitter. The candidates present included Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Tim Scott, and Mike Pence. Notably absent from “The Summit” was former President Donald Trump. He gave a speech in Iowa at his own, separate event. “The Summit” was a roaring success online and on Blaze TV. Viewers appreciated Tucker Carlson’s direct, but not necessarily inflammatory approach to interviewing candidates. Some people, such as Vivek Ramaswamy, did very well. Others, like Asa Hutchinson, did not. Glenn Beck referred to Hutchinson’s interview as equivalent to the Hindenburg disaster.
